Of the remaining 101, 1 died of Bright's disease, 5 of consumption, 1 of neuralgia, 1 by suicide, 2 by accident, and 1 from an unknown cause. Of the 87 who were living two years ago, 67 reported themselves in good health, and from the rest no definite answer could be obtained.

Who was it?WHO gave a Puff to '82,

Telling us all that we could do

(Although they thought it early to), -

Who was it?

Who wrote an Editorial,

A sort of huge memorial

Withholding pen censorial, -

Who was it?

Who says fine things, then takes them back,

And gives a pat, and then a crack,

Seeming consistency to lack, -

Who is it?
